In 1990 we imported frozen semen from the Colsidex Kennels from the # 1 Weim at that time Am Ch. Colsidex Nani Reprint.
This was to be used on Tia. The semen was lost in transit and found in Queensland. Tia was already in season and ready for the progesterone tests to be commenced when it arrived.
The 'N' litter was born. 9 pups from frozen semen at that time was quite a breakthrough. This was a superb litter. 6 of these were sold for showing and produced 3 Grand Champions the only litter to date in Australasia to attain this record. One pup sold to Mt. Isa was killed in an unfortunate accident at 6 months of age but had already won 2 CC's.
The others were:
